The person who signed up for the GMail account left me a comment last night around 10:00 PM. The message is here:


I’ve done a bit of investigation today and found very little, but a bit more than I knew before.

  • The person lives in Chicago area (looks to be Plainfield)
  • The person uses Comcast for their broadband provider.
  • The IP address, unless Comcast’s DHCP is renewing things fast, is pingable meaning they either have it hooked directly into the computer or they have a router and decided for whatever reason to respond to pings. My guess is that it is the former, but I could be wrong. If it is the former, than the person is probably less tech savvy because they probably only have a single computer where most geeks I know have a minimum of 3 and usually have a wireless router of some kind.
  • The IP address doesn’t appear to be Linux or Unix based because it doesn’t have SSH open. Thiis is a lame assumption, because they might have router and just decided not to open SSH and still be a Linux or Unix user.

So, very little is know thus far, but more than yesterday. We’ll have to wait and see if they drop another clue….

  1. Another clue – the person leaving the comment DID NOT sign up for the GMail account
